Commercial Auto Insurance
Protect Your Business On the Road
Commercial Auto Insurance provides coverage for bodily injury and physical damage resulting from an auto accident where you or an employee is the driver. It also covers the vehicles your company owns and, depending on the policy, extends to those that you hire, lease or rent.
It is often assumed that Commercial Auto Insurance is for large industrial vehicles like semi trucks or dump trucks. In reality, you should purchase a Commercial Auto policy if the usage of your vehicle is related to the driver’s occupation, profession or business.
You may also need a Commercial Auto policy if the vehicle ownership is in your company’s name.
Talk to us at Kuzbiel Insurance Brokers if you are unsure about the appropriate coverage for your business. We’ll be happy to discuss your situation and provide information that will help you understand your coverage options.
Typically, Commercial Auto policies are "named driver only," which means that only the drivers specifically rated on the policy can drive an insured vehicle.
Commercial Auto Insurance provides coverage similar to your Personal Auto Policy (liability and physical damage) plus additional options for your business.
